The S5 touch screen works by capacitive touchscreen and not resistive touchscreen. Capacitive touchscreen displays rely on the electrical properties of the human body to detect when and where on a display the user touches. Because of this, capacitive displays can only work as normal when dry and be controlled with very light touches of a dry finger and generally but not always cannot be used with a mechanical stylus or a gloved hand.
